My last Dead show. Just sad and painful to sit through. Jerry was not playing much at all through the show, just leaning his head on the mic and sleeping. Times on this recording show drums and space lasting some 12 minutes each but it seemed like drums lasted half an hour to cover for Jerry being comatose. I knew after seeing this show if Jerry didn't get a break he was doomed. When I saw the news on VH1 that August (announced with 'He's Gone" playing, someone knew their shit) I was sad beyond belief but I was not surprised.
